During the time period, where Total War was not against International Laws, sure they would have been justified to use whatever weapon they wanted in order to "win." BTW, the U.S. killed more people firebombing Tokyo (conventional weapos) then we did dropping the two nukes.

The Japanese used balloons to try to land biological agents in continental America. Would the Japanese military have dropped atomic bombs? Looking at their tactics and actions, they certainly would have and not just enough to end the war.

From the Japanese standpoint, yes. And if Japan had the means they would not have hesitated to do it. As it was, dropping the bomb shorted the war by at least a year, saving hundreds of billions of dollars of national treasure and more importantly, probably 3 to 5 million lives.

Asking about justification is tough. Its relative, typically to who wins. The Japanese certainly would have viewed it as justified, but not so much when we did it.
